Dad, you should focus only to one project at a time. Do not start new projects if you have unfinished projects.

And he is absolutely right :)

Can 36 Questions Make You Fall in Love?

If you want to try, made an app for that :)!
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jhdigitalsolutions.lovequestions

Original story by +Mandy Len Catron on NY Times:

"More than 20 years ago, the psychologist Arthur Aron succeeded in making two strangers fall in love in his laboratory. Last summer, I applied his technique in my own life, which is how I found myself standing on a bridge at midnight, staring into a man’s eyes for exactly four minutes.

My Christmas Habit

1) Got an idea of a Christmas Themed App
2) Start working it too late on December
3) Sleepless nights
4) Run out of time , have to submit a little buggy version to App Store.
5) Make bug fixes for next Christmas.

Next time I shall start working Christmas App on summer time.

Here is one classic Finnish Christmas song for you

JONY IVE: This Is The Most Important Thing I Learned From Steve Jobs

This sounds simplistic, but it still shocks me how few people really practice this. And it's a struggle to practice, but it's this issue of focus. Steve was the most remarkably focused person I've ever met in my life. 

And the thing with focus is, it's not this thing you aspire to, or you decide on Monday, 'You know, I'm going to be focused.' It is a every minute, 'Why are we talking about this? This is what we're working on.' You can achieve so much when you truly focus.

And one of the things Steve would say — because I think he was concerned that I wasn't, heh, — he would say, 'How many things have you said no to?' And I would have these sacrificial things, because I wanted to be very honest about it, so I said no to this, and no to that, but he knew that I wasn't vaguely interested in doing those things anyway, so there was no real sacrifice. 

What focus means is saying no to something with every bone in your body think is a phenomenal idea, and you wake up thinking about it, but you end up saying no to it because you're focusing on something else.

Debugging the code of life - CRISPR is search and replace for the DNA

CRISPR-Cas9 technology allows us to make small edits to modify and improve genetic code written in DNA. This powerful technology has promising applications in agriculture and medicine. 

"The first evidence that CRISPR can reverse disease symptoms in living animals was demonstrated in March 2014, when MIT researchers cured mice of a rare liver disorder." [1]

"...four research teams reported harnessing the system...to target the destruction of specific genes in human cells...various groups have used it to delete, add, activate or suppress targeted genes in human cells, mice, rats, zebrafish, bacteria, fruit flies, yeast, nematodes and crops, demonstrating broad utility for the technique. With CRISPR, scientists can create mouse models of human diseases much more quickly than before, study individual genes much faster, and easily change multiple genes in cells at once to study their interactions." [2]

geneettinen, ympäristön geneettinen ja ympäristö, geenimanipulaation on näin ollen vahingollisempaa kuin tiede ymmärtää tällä hetkellä, mutta toivon että ninkuin ilmastonmuutosfanaatikot ja muut näkis sen kokonaiskuvan hyvin pian koska muuten ei ole enää mitään mitä korjata.

Cool new technology: X-AR Exoskeleton Robotic Arm!

Not just cool but life changing new technology , super excited.

The Story:
My name is Zach and I have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. I was beginning to lose the strength in my arms and daily tasks such as eating, drinking, brushing my teeth, and turning on a light switch took everything I had. For 2 years I have been talking to the CEO of Talem Technologies the makers of the X-Ar Exoskeleton to see if it would help me. He said that he would have the X-Ar at an ergonomics convention just a few hours away from where I live and that I was welcome to try them. 

Everyone at the Talem booth was unsure if the X-Ar would even work for me but I just had this feeling so I put the X-Ar on and now here I am today. Before this equipment was only used in factories but now I am the very first person in the world to have them mounted on a wheelchair to use for daily living. I want to share this equipment with other people who could benefit from the X-Ar. Just the thought of getting to move your and just simply brush your teeth or turn on that light switch means everything. I want others to get the same joy I get using the X-Ar.

Google Play want to get rid of Indie developers?

Developers and companies are being destroyed by an automatic policy system that is currently in place. Sounds scary? It is!

Text from the Google Mobile App Developer Partner Panel Suggestion box tells me feelings too.

Remove the fear factor

Developing Android applications has been an amazing journey for us so far but there is always a dark cloud above our heads, the constant fear that we might be doing something wrong without even knowing it and some day Google scans our entire account, finds some apps that are not compliant and completely removes all of our work.
 
This has got to stop.
 
There must be a way to officially validate our apps. I know a manual review process is out of the question for Google so I think a public "app validation tool" would be viable. Google has the processing power to do this so I do not see why such a tool does not exist.
 
There is no reason to keep the current application validation algorithms completely private and hidden away from developers. If we do something wrong we should be fairly warned - before the "3 strikes in 2 seconds, you're out" scenario.
 
I think I speak for all Android developers when I say we need transparency and a way to mend our mistakes before the dreaded "Account Suspended" e-mail.
 
Thank you.
 
Sometimes I question why I spend time contributing to an ecosystem that obviously don't care about the developers that create content for it.

What other explanation could there be for the recent wave of reddit posts/articles about developers having apps suspended, without receiving a real explanation or any chance to rectify.

Most recently it hit phandroid, who have written a quite good article on the issue. You can read it here: http://phandroid.com/2015/01/04/play-store-developer-policies/

To sum up the general issue, app gets suspended and all the developer gets is some vague email that one or more things may or may not violate one or more clauses of the developer distribution agreement. No information on exactly what the issue is.
The developer attempts to guess what the issue is and wants to release a new version that hopefully complies. Except, that's not possible since the app is suspended.
Requests to reinstate the app are denied with canned responses.

The only possibility left is to release it as a completely new app, and lose all your downloads and reviews.

Could Google be shitting any more on these developers?

I'm sure phandroid is going to get their issue resolved. After all, they have thousands of readers - too much bad publicity.

The rest of us are fucked tho.

I'm glad play store isn't my source of income.
